The iPad as a tool for Education

http://www.emergingedtech.com/2012/07/study-finds-benefits-in-use-of-ipad-as-educational-tool/

Research looking at one UK school 1:1 trial of iPads. Some interesting stats around use of iPads across curriculum, use, technical aspects etc.   Study concludes:

"The implementation of a one to one scheme using the iPad has been very successful. The devices have been well received by students and by staff and are increasingly well-­‐used in the curriculum as their attributes and limitations are learned. There has been a significant and very positive impact on learning and teaching which, in time, should be reflected in achievement and attainment, thanks to both pedagogical changes and new ways of learning engendered by “any time anywhere” access to information and learning tools.

Progress in the implementation of the scheme has been outstanding. By sharing such strategies widely, other schools can adopt similar processes. " p. 52
